The Peugeot 508 is is better all round than its predecessor, and should be a fleet favourite

Looks better than the saloon . Im impressed with the look of the interior too .

Aerodynamics seem to be a big styling point for Estates at the moment with tear drop rear ends .

No doubt great for economy but not much good for getting stuff in and out or rear visibility . I revise what I previously said about an Estate test maybe this v the Passat v the Mondeo v the Superb all in 2l d form as I think they will sell better than 1.6ls .

Would be good to see which became the best working estate .

It is a strange old world. I can remember a time when the estate version was almost an afterthought, now they appear to be more stylish than their saloon brethren. The 508 is certainly the best looking Pug since the 405, but why have they stuck this strange gearbox in it which is neither fish nor fowl.

That's a very good looking car with what looks like a well styled interior, I've never owned a French car, but something like that could tempt me, once they sort out the gearbox problem. Pleased to see that Peugeot have cleaned up their front end appearance, by ditching their gaping guppy look. If only Audi would do the same, they used to be such good looking cars once upon a time, but they haven't been for several years.

Agreed! I saw one this morning - also in black and with biggish wheels and I must say there were plenty of people having a gawk at it. Really quite a good looking jigger.
